Today, not everyone knows that in Ukraine, in addition to the Carpathian mountains, waterfalls, rivers, lakes, a volcano, the Kherson desert, canyons and seas, there are also caves.
In addition, not some miniature deep voids, but truly unique natural formations, where their own, completely different life takes place.
Among all the dungeons known and open for tourists, I would like to especially note the Optimistic Cave, which is the longest gypsum cave in the world.
The total length of the labyrinths is 252 km, but these statistics change annually, as cavers discover more and more unknown sites.
The cave Optimistic for tourists
Until recently, few people knew about the existence of the Optimistic Cave, but today the situation has radically changed for the better.
Based on the assessment of the ecotourism potential of the local attractions of the Ternopil region, it was decided to open a cave and organize excursions for tourists.
Now everyone has a truly unique opportunity to visit the cave, which has not yet been fully explored and has recently been opened for tourists.
Naturally, entry is allowed, but exclusively accompanied by a caver.
It is very pleasing that the experts were not mistaken in their forecasts and we can enjoy the beauty created by nature, which appeared as a result of the 20 millionth process of the passed time interval. Those wishing to see labyrinths, galleries, spacious halls, the shimmering shine of crystals, bizarre shapes and huge boulders in the bowels of the earth, breathe fresh air with a healing property for humans. Today Optimistic Cave is a popular attraction of Ukraine. Here, surrounded by a mysterious atmosphere, you will see a completely different world, discover something new, amazing and unique.
